The Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) facility in Saltillo, Mexico, is employing an RFID system to know exactly where within its yard each trailer loaded with specific materials and components is located. By attaching passive UHF RFID tags to the trailers, the company can direct yard-truck drivers to the specific location where trailers need to be retrieved and then delivered, thereby saving time that the staff previously spent driving around the yard reading serial numbers, using the radio and manually writing down trailer ID numbers on paper. The yard management system has enabled DTNA to achieve 99 percent trailer location accuracy within its yard, and has allowed yard workers to increase productivity. Learn how Daimler has been able to reduce its number of yard trucks, and how the system also provides real-time management reporting about trailer arrivals, trailer movement and worker productivity.
